Local yoga students will give new meaning to the term "downward dog" this weekend when the Rail Yard Coffee Haus hosts Postures! Puppies! Pints! on Sunday afternoon.

The event will feature a one hour class with instructors from Blossom Yoga, followed by an hour of "puppy snuggles" and drinks. All proceeds from the puppy yoga party will benefit Yola’s Pet Fund, a local organization promoting animal rescue, fostering, and adoption across the state of Wyoming.

Tickets for the fundraiser are $20, which can also be applied toward the adoption of an animal. Space is limited and puppy yoga participants are encouraged to register in advance online.

Similar events have become popular fundraisers around the country. Philadelphia Magazine recently published several tips for attending a puppy yoga party: don't bring your favorite yoga mat, keep an eye on your socks and shoes, and be ready to take a lot of pictures.
